Communication is an essential skill in life. Communication effects how we make friends,  play with one another, make each other laugh, and learn the social skills needed to function in the world. When a child is struggling with the understanding or use of speech and language, this can have an impact on a child’s social, cognitive and emotional development.  Also, speech and language skills are the foundation of your child's school success.  We can help your child develop the speech and language skills necessary for academic success.  We believe that early intervention is critical for children with speech, language and communication difficulties.

We feel strongly in developing a relationship with each and every client to help deliver consistent and positive therapeutic outcomes. Our treatment approach focuses on using current, evidence based treatment approaches to develop communication skills in a warm, comfortable and fun environment. We use a play based approach that maximizes engagement, participation and learning and supports generalization of skills.
